Skilled Advocacy from a Billings Personal Injury Lawyer

I care deeply about each case and client that I work with, and I will always provide passionate and tenacious representation. Whether you are being denied by an insurance company or bullied by your employer, I am prepared to help.

My firm helps workers and injured people protect their rights in cases such as:

If you have been injured in an accident, you could be suffering the stress and frustration of trying to pay your medical bills while you are missing work. If you are an employee who has been denied your rights, you also could be reeling from serious financial consequences. You can find the compassionate legal support you deserve at Hughes Law, PLLC.

How Long Do I Have to File a Claim?

Your available time to file a personal injury suit is known as a statute of limitations, and it varies state by state. For Montana and South Dakota, you will have three years to file a lawsuit against a liable party. Wyoming is slightly more forgiving, allowing claimants four years to file a personal injury lawsuit. North Dakota has a generous six-year limitation.

Keep in mind that the statute of limitations are measured from the date of injury—so if you were injured between three or six years ago, you will want to seek a personal injury lawyer quickly in order to pursue compensation and hold negligent parties liable.

How Much is My Injury Case Worth?

The answer to this question depends on a number of factors, mostly regarding the severity of your injuries. If you suffered major injuries that caused significant life changes, including paraplegia or other types of paralysis, that will affect how much compensation you are entitled to. Our firm retains economists and medical experts who can testify to your injuries in order to ask for appropriate resources from liable parties.

For example, a medical expert would be able to calculate with accuracy the annual costs of your treatment. They would also be able to provide the average costs of your lifestyle modifications, such as accessibility ramps or special travel equipment. An economist could then adjust these costs for inflation over the course of your lifetime, ensuring that you would be covered for the rest of your life. They would also be able to offer the money you would have made while working for the course of your lifetime.

In short, as a personal injury attorney, I would employ every possible avenue in order to get you the resources and provisions you need. That type of aggressive and seasoned litigation only comes from experienced injury lawyers.

What Damages Can I Claim in an Injury Suit in Montana?

Personal injury claims are intended to cover a broad range of needs for claimants. Essentially, every cost that you have incurred as a direct result of your damages would be covered in a personal injury claim. For wrongful death suits or severe injuries with lifelong consequences, punitive damages may also be levied against the wrongdoer for your benefit.

Specific damages that can be covered, include:

  • Medical costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Long-term treatment
  • Housing modifications
  • Lost wages and earning potential
